GameStar CD-ROM CoverDiscs

GameStar is a monthly released PC computer game magazine, published by the IDG Entertainment Media GmbH in Germany. In 2008 it had an average monthly circulation of 250,000 copies and is therefore the best sold PC computer game magazine in Europe. It is also being published in Hungary, the Czech Republic and China. IDG started it also in Italy, Poland and the USA?but those issues have folded after a few months, although the corresponding web sites still exist. The US version was, quite differently from the rest, positioned as a magazine for adults, about PC and console games, similar to inCite. In 2005, GameStar spawned a sister mag called /GameStar/dev which is targeted at European Game Developers. GameStar also has a sister magazine named GamePro, which focuses on console games. Incidentally its headquarters are right next-door to the GameStar office. GameStar was published in the US starting in summer 2004, before the first issue was shipped the magazine was changed from 12 to 8 issues a year (not being published in July, August, September and October). To try to draw more appeal to the magazine female models were featured in the "Digital Lust" page. After only 3 issues the magazine was canceled in the US.
